The Exterior of a Mattress. The mattress exterior is called ticking. Visually it is really not too important to select a "pretty" mattress as it will be covered most of the time. Instead you want to make sure the ticking is sturdy and well made and not prone to ripping. The higher quality ticking is made of material that is knitted or woven using cotton or viscose yarn. Cheaper mattresses are made of polypropylene or polyester. The cheapest mattresses are made of stitchbond or bonded cloth. Manufacturers now make external mattress covers with special features such as anti-allergy anti-bacterial and anti-static. They may be resistant to staining water and fire. Amazingly enough there are even mattresses that give off different scents conducive to a good nights sleep.
Rubber latex is a superb commodity made from an extract of the Hevea tree. This can be much used in a wide range of products and a familiar practice is for mattress toppers and pillows to be manufactured from it. Natural latex is a really tough product and a good quality latex mattress or mattress topper will probably last many years. Latex mattresses and pillows are produced with tiny holes inside them. These little holes make the latex rubber squishier as well as more comfortable to sleep on. So because of this the larger the holes the more yielding the mattress or mattress topper will feel.
The Warranty. The best way to protect your mattress purchase is to make sure it comes with a warranty. A typical warranty will last between 10 and 20 years. They basically cover any flaws in the mattress. If the construction is faulty or the materials are abnormally inadequate then you should be covered. Adjustable beds water beds and airbeds will also have warranties on the various parts such as the motor or the controls. Keep in mind the warranty will not cover the bed for normal deterioration.
Not Learning More About The Mattress (detailed mattress materials reviews ratings complaints warranty) - Buying a mattress "blindly" is the leading cause of dissatisfaction among mattress owners. But too often consumers allow themselves to get "bullied" into the product of the day without getting a second opinion from others. Checking detailed mattress materials reviews ratings and complaints is a good idea before shelling out your money - you would be surprised at what you will learn. Also ask for written details as some salespeople will tell you everything good you like to hear; some people may claim 100% natural latex mattress while it actually has synthetic latex in it. Its best to know about this fickle piece of documentation before finding out the hard way that it is not what you thought it was.
When it comes to maintenance a spring mattress has to be rotated once in a while preferably once every three months. This is done to even the wear and it is important that you avoid bending or folding the mattress. With a memory foam mattress on the other hand you do not have to flip it over or rotate it: it virtually requires no maintenance.
Failure To Consider Alternatives - Many shoppers have a price point or product type in mind and refuse to consider alternative recommendations by the salesperson. If the salesperson fully understands your needs and preferences chances are quite good that he or she can offer a couple of alternatives to let you see what other brands can offer. In some cases they will cost a little more but refusing to consider those alternatives could make for a big mistake down the road. Ask many questions keeping your options open to suggestions and alternatives may result in improved sleep quality so dont rule out products or brands you never considered before.
